, but comparatively we're doing much better than we were and have been for a few years now. and yet, today, in texas, another round has just begun of unpaving the roads. seriously. in four counties in south texas, and two counties in west texas, today is the day state started converting paved roads into gravel roads. texas state department of transportation made the announcement last month. "since paving roads is too expensive and there's not enough funding to repave them all, our only other option to make them safer is to turn them into gravel roads. "it's not like they're saying gravel roads are better, figured out grounds on which gravel roads are pleasing or sound, or get the most out of your performance car. those are not artisanal roads. roads in texas are being unpaved because pavement is something we cannot afford there anymore. in this part of texas it's happening because of the "sharp increase in heavy traffic due to the oil boom." the damage related to energy development has become so extensive that state and local authorities lack the funding to make all the repairs. the problem increase

the stand. he still has not cross examined any of them. nbc's mark potter is outside the courthouse in texas. he joins us. mark, that was one of the other points of outrage for some people is that hasan would be in a position to cross examine some of the very people he's accused of shooting down that day. he's not done so so far. what else are you seeing in court today? >> reporter: well, aside from the argument you were talking about, it will go to an appeals court, it was very dramatic testimony as soldiers and former soldiers took to the stand to describe what happened on november 5th, 2009, when 13 people were killed here, 31 were injured in this rampage shooting at a processing center. soldiers, former soldiers told of seeing others being shot, hearing them scream, watching them die, being shot themselves. it was very, very dramatic. one of them, staff sergeant michael davis, said that he heard a young woman screaming out, my baby, my baby, my baby. and we know that a 21-year-old soldier, francesca velez, private first class from chicago was shot and killed. she was nine weeks pregnant.

psychiatrist admitted he opened fire at the texas army base in 2009, killing 13 people and wounding 30 others. casey stiegel is live at fort hood, texas. casey, hasan still not cross-examining his witnesss? >> reporter: , no, patti ann, he is isn't. i was in the courtroom. i had a chance to study him. he looked down at the table most of the time. when the judge addresses him he is very respectful, yes, ma'am, no, ma'am. but as these witnesses are giving gut-wrenching testimony, he mostly stairs at the table and doesn't make any kind of eye contact with them. major hasan had a relatively bizarre interruption of court yesterday. it came during some of the most horrific testimony we heard thus far. the sergeant who supervised the medical facility where the shooting happened was on the stand. she was in middle of describing a scene of non-stop gunshots and chaos, when hasan randomly interrupted and objected asked please be reminded she was under oath. clearly she was under oath. she had already sworn in. so everyone kind of moved on. when it comes to the cross-examination of these witnesses not r
about during the annual physical checkup the former president has at his doctor in dallas, texas. what we are told by aides is that during the exam there was a discovery of a blocked artery. what we don't know, were there any symptoms? anything leading up to that? that, we don't know. what we can say about the former president is he has maintained a very rigorous physical activity. he is known for cycling and doing a lot of cardio exercise so that makes this even more surprising in some ways at least from a layperson's point of view. he hasn't had any other complicated medical issues. mostly it's been scrapes from falling off bicycles where he's had treatment in the past and issues with his knees. so what we learned is that he went this morning into a procedure, not open heart surgery, nothing like that. a stent procedure which can be done through an artery where a stent is placed in, the blocked artery to open it up and that resumes the blood flow. what we're told is that he is doing well. he's in high spirits. he will remain in the hospital today but is expected to be relieved tomorr
'm a u.s. citizen by birth. >> he couldn't be more right. welcome back to "hardball." that was texas senator ted cruz telling jonathan carl he is a natural born citizen, therefore eligible to be president. cruz went the extra mile to release his birth certificate to the dallas morning news which reported cruz who was born in canada to an american mother has dual citizenship is by the accident of being born up there. following that report he released a statement. he said now the dallas morning news says i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that to be true, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada but i'm an american by birth and a u.s. senator, i believe i should only be an american. well said. i couldn't agree with him more. odd to say in their about a guy i probably disagree with on many points but he could not be more right. the irony here of course, is that cruz's birth mirrors the phony scenario concocted by the birthers including donald trump to falsely have been arguing even to this day that president obama was born overseas mostly in kenya
against the use of what's left of the voting rights act against voter i.d. laws in texas, what does that tell you about where this debate is going looking at the president's address tomorrow? >> well, sensenbrenner did say yesterday at a meeting that the rnc held to commemorate the march on washington that he wanted to be part of a solution on the voting rights act, and he vowed to fix the law by the end of this year which i think is significant. far too many leaders in the republican party have been silent at a time when there's a wave of new voter suppression measures all throughout the south. we have seven southern state that have passed our or implemented new voting restrictions since june bht supreme court gutted the voting rights act. this is a crisis situation. we're seeing the biggest threat to right is that we've seen since the passage of the voting rights act in 1995. >> jonathan, what do you make of that, that sensenbrenner who has a good record is saying we've got do something but not on voter i.d.? >> well on, the one hand it shows leadership. there's a glimmer of leade
by mail. attorney general eric holder has his sights set on the texas voter i.d. law. holder said over the weekend, the struggle must and will go on in the cause for our nation's quest for justice until every eligible american has the chance to enter -- exercise his or her right to vote. texans are fighting back. >> this is deeply depressing to see the chief law enforcement officer in the country use partisan politics and that's all it is, to drive a wedge between americans based on race and ethnicity. it's really sad because we have come a long way. obviously we've elected barack obama president of the united states. >> the senator suggests much of this push is about a lame duck administration trying to turn texas into a blue state. arthel: so is there danger if it's interpreted as republicans trying to restrict voting? >> there are certainly some people who think so. virginia, arkansas, tennessee and north dakota have enacted new voter i.d. laws this year and colin powell is among those saying that voting will make it more difficult and immediately turn off voters the g.o.p. needs.
texas congressional colleague, the staggeringly brilliant louie goment, who lent support. >> who do you want to die in america that has breast cancer so that we're on a par with the english system? it will all be equalized, so everybody will be getting less than the health care they would get without obama care. >> everybody will be getting less? really even the 45 million people who have no health insurance at all? lord, what fools these mortals be. let's get to our panel. here in new york city is joy reid, the managing editor of thegrio.com. david corn, and also msnbc policy analyst, the great ezra klein of "the washington post." joy, i apologize for comparing british parliamentary history with speaker boehner, but there was the parliament of dunces in 1404, when lawyers were banned. then there was the adult parliament of 1614. has speaker boehner managed to -- the addled and the dunces umpgts and then throw in the do-nothing congress that we had in this fair country. i think the funniest part was the part in the introwhen they said they were going on recess. i had no idea they were a
. this is a chilling story. we're talking about kids turned into killers. >> it's happening along the texas-mexican border. american teenagers are being recruited to be a part of the drug cartel. two former asass sasassins agre tell how they got involved in the business of killing. >> reporter: look into his eyes and you see a baby faced 26-year-old and he blinks. then you see something else. another set of sinister eyes staring back. these tattooed on his eyelids. they're the window into the soul of a drug cartel asassin. >> how many people did you kill? >> no idea. >> lost track? >> when you're in mexico -- >> could you guess, 10, 20, 30, 50. >> between 20 and 30. >> reporter: he said he was 15 years old when the drug cartel recruited him to kill. he was part of a secret crew of hit men made up of american teenagers living in laredo, texas along with this men. they spoke with cnn from the texas prisons where they are serving life sentences for murder. both men say they worked for miguel, the ruth less violent leader who was recently arrested this mexico. >> he's not going to tell you to d
hurricane galveston in 1900, 8,000 deaths that was category for his eldest in texas and it is heartbreaking. john: now the most controversial whether myth i am told extreme weather is getting worse because of global warming. >> not just the raging fires and more powerful storms. john: what will we do? the author of "high tide on main street" oceanographer john englander also climatologist pat michaelsfrom . should i be so scared as the president suggests? >> it is so twentieth century. in the last tenures forecast of global warming has begun to calmed down we are seeing sensitivity of temperature being reduced by 40 percent with the new climate models. be old models were too hot to that is recognized. john: that is 40 percent less but if weather is worse that is a problem. >> with care hurricanes hurricanes, tornadoes, they don't show the signals they are supposed to. there is a thing about the billion dollar disasters they are going up but what you have to do is take the edge damage and adjusted for gdp and inflation and is simply has no trend was however. john: that people spend more ? >>
seattle, went to texas with that huge contract. he never really fit in there. he went to the yankees, obviously, and he was never considered a real yankee. whatever that means. even with the 2009 world series. so it wasn't like he had this beloved fan base out there to begin with. then in 2009 he admits or confirms a report that he doped when he was younger. he said it was for a limited time. if anybody felt they could forgive him then, he's blown that up now. >> and to the point, he's been combative throughout this process. part of the press conference tonight, what was he like? >> well, he was really subdued. no other way to say it. i would not say he was combative. at least in this particular outing. he was not. seemed he was really holding back emotions. kept saying repeatedly that he would be able to say more at a later time. kept saying repeatedly that he didn't want to disrupt the appeal process and wanted that to play out. i also found interesting, anderson, the reaction outside here. to rodriguez. i heard you talking about the fans. you saw him sign some autographs before th
'll use the other half. more than they used to. starting with texas and continuing presumably with the other states that had had laws blocked by the voting rights act before the supreme court ruling but now feel like they can go ahead. so texas first. maybe alabama. maybe mississippi. maybe north carolina after today. sometimes you use the bully pulpit. sometimes you have the authority to weigh in and stop something directly. sometimes when you lose that authority, as justice department did during the, with the voting rights act case. sometimes when you lose that authority, you instead decide you're going to sue. what is the range of options available to you? and how do you use it? how do you still try to make progress when some avenues toward the progress you want to make are blocked? on the issue of drugs and criminal justice, the obama administration made it a priority to try to reduce the huge disparity in sentencing for crack cocaine versus powder cocaine. i mean, if cocaine is the problem, why be so much more lenient for one variety of cocaine and so much more strict for
. in addition to general powell's comments, the justice department filed a lawsuit against the state of texas to block that state's voter i.d. law that went in effect a mere hours after the supreme court's decision essentially gutted the -- in a statement here, eric holder said -- we will not allow the supreme court's recent decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights. in fact, within hours of that comment, senator john cornyn of texas, who is one partisan paul, issued his own statement, saying -- facts mean little to a justice department bent on inserting itself into the sovereign affairs of texas and a lame-duck administration in trying to turn our state blue. excuse me, senator. lame duck? we are six months into a four-year presidential term, but that's the way they want us to think, isn't it, clarence? they've been really good at it. make people think that obama is on his way out the door. >> sure. the irony of this is, as was mentioned earlier, while the republicans have put so much attention on voter i.d. they had a problem getting
to the texas lawsuit on voter i.d. issues. he said, i regret that the doj announced its intent to file a lawsuit against the texas voter i.d. law, citing the voting rights act, which i mentioned he supported. he said, i spoke with the attorney general and requested he withdraw the case until there can be a legislative fix of the vra. the lawsuit would make it much more difficult to pass a bipartisan fix to restore the heart of the vra. to translate that, you basically have a republican who's typically been on the side of voting rights act renewal now saying he doesn't think we can get there unless the attorney general doesn't enforce parts of the law that supreme court didn't even touch. i view that, yesterday's statement, as one of the worst things that's happened in this debate. what do you think going into this weekend is important for the folks you're working with to try to get section four and section five of the voting rights act restored? >> this attorney general has an obligation. he put his hand on a bible, took an oath of office to enforce the law. there's no more egregious v

a possible death sentence. nbc's mark potter joins me live now from ft. hood, texas. mark, good afternoon. what can you tell us about this verdict? >> reporter: well, hi, mara. that verdict came after about seven hours of deliberations by the u.s. army jury panel. as you said, they found nidal hasan guilty of all charges. they reached that verdict unanimously. he was found guilty of 13 counts of premeditated murder, 32 counts of premeditated attempted murder. hasan showed no signs of emotion in the courtroom. family members were there. they were silent, as instructed by the judge, but some of them were in tears. hasan, who never offered up a defense, never gave a closing statement, now faces a sentencing hearing beginning here at ft. hood on monday at 9:00 a.m. 13 membof the family members, e one of them representing the 13 people killed in that rampage, will be allowed to speak to the panel. the government will also have some expert witnesses. the most important point is that prosecutors will be seeking the death penalty. the other option is life in prison. we do not know in nidal hasan
